The Selsey Coastguard have urged people to remain safe whilst paddleboarding.

They said: “If you go paddleboarding always wear your leash and hold onto your board if you get into trouble, always carry a means of calling for help on your person, tell someone else where you're going and when you'll be back, always check the weather forecast and tide times, always wear a personal floatation device (PFD) and always try to paddle with someone else.
